So Audi are (likely) to be grey and white with splash of red, Porsche are grey and white with a splash of red and Toyota are mainly white with a splash of red and blue. It’s a good thing the racing in WEC is good…
From the design images they’ve released so far, Rebellion could be going back to a white car as well. I guess white shows up the dirt and battle scars better after a 24-hour race – that’s why all the white cars are in LMP1 and not F1. There’s still time though, c’mon Williams.
I think the new Audi and Porsche look bloody brilliant, but that Porsche’s livery is so boring. I guess the main thing these liveries need is a title sponsor, in Porsche’s case something like Rothmans or Martini. It’s really weird that they don’t go for a more eye-catching livery, as they claim it is their vision for the sports car of the future
For the earlier part of this conversation: here is a mention in the statement about the engine being a V4.
The drive system of the new LMP1 race car is based on a four cylinder petrol engine that is as compact as it is lightweight. It performs load-bearing functions within the chassis based on its V-angle construction, which also offers thermodynamic advantages.
